Dr. Yunki Cho welcomes you and your family to Sky Valley Dental! Dr. Cho took over the practice in May of 2019, and though our name has changed, our commitment to providing excellent dentistry to families in Monroe, WA has not. You will even see many of the same familiar faces that served you before when you visit Sky Valley Dental.
Dr. Cho brings advanced skills and leading-edge technology to our dental practice so you can enjoy new services and an even more comfortable experience. We invite you to take a moment to get to know more about Dr. Cho and our team here, and we look forward to getting to know you.
Dr. Yunki Cho
Hello, my name is Yunki Cho. I am grateful for this opportunity to introduce myself to you and to share with you a little bit about my background.
After growing up in a small town in New Jersey, I attended and graduated from New York University with a degree in Biology. While at NYU, I took classes in painting and ceramics, sharpening my dexterity for a career in dentistry. I then graduated from the NYU College of Dentistry with honors in aesthetic dentistry and obtained further training in implants and Invisalign.
Following dental school, my wife Diana and I moved to Jacksonville, FL to pursue a great career opportunity. And with the arrival of our baby girl Claire, we decided to settle in the greater Seattle area where we have many friends and family. I have been practicing in Mill Creek, WA, as we now call the beautiful Northwest our home. We enjoy spending time outdoors with our dog Coco, traveling, dining out, and cheering for the Mariners and Seahawks.
We look forward to becoming a part of the Monroe community.
I love dentistry, learning about new ideas in dentistry, and serving patients as a dentist. I am committed to providing compassionate and meticulous dental care to my patients in the most comfortable manner possible. I was fortunate to meet Dr. Chasen, who shares the same philosophy of one-on-one personal care and quality dental treatment that I do. In May 2019, I purchased Chasen Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. I am excited to carry on the same tradition of excellence that you have come to expect over the years as Sky Valley Dental. I look forward to meeting you in person and getting to know you.
